Name Amount Notes
2- row 12 lb It is low in total nitrogen, well modified, high in enzymes, and easily converts with a single step infusion mash. It has a light, clean, smooth flavor. One of our most popular base malts, it is perfect for building nearly any style ale
White Wheat 1 lb Head retention and mouthfeel
Carapils 1 lb has a clear, glassy endosperm and contributes unfermentable sugars that add foam stability, and palate fullness to beer. Use up to 5% to improve body and significantly enhance head retention without adding flavor or color to your beer.
Crystal 40L 1 lb Crystal 40L is used in some Pale Ales and most Amber Ales. It can also be used in darker beers, as well, when you are looking for the benefit of Crystal malt and some color contribution, but not the caramel notes that the higher colored Crystal malts have
Crystal 40L 4 oz Crystal 40L is used in some Pale Ales and most Amber Ales. It can also be used in darker beers, as well, when you are looking for the benefit of Crystal malt and some color contribution, but not the caramel notes that the higher colored Crystal malts have
Chocolate Malt 8 oz Chocolate malt will give your beer a warm, nutty, chocolate-like flavor. Just a few ounces in a batch will impart a slight brown color. Use up to a pound in porters and stouts and dark lagers.
